THE JES PROCESS
Foundation Problem Signs in Lynchburg
Foundation damage can be very complex. While some telltale problem signs are easily visible – including wall cracks, bowing basement walls, and uneven floors – others can go under the radar and be connected to other damage. These include sticking windows and doors, drywall nail pops, cracking and leaning chimneys, and foundation settlement. When in doubt, reach out to your local foundation repair specialists at JES for a complete foundation inspection to uncover what’s really going on with your Lynchburg home.
Stuck Windows and Doors
If you’re unsure if a stuck door or stuck windows are caused by your house settling, check for these other problem signs: uneven floors, drywall cracks, or gaps between the wall and floor.
Chimney Brick Cracks
Your chimney is the heaviest portion of your home and there’s a lot of weight concentrated in a small space.
Drywall Nail Pops
It’s true that nail pops can be a big problem. It’s concerning to see nails popping out of the ceiling or nail pops in walls.
Causes of Foundation Damage in Lynchburg
There could be numerous causes behind the foundation problems your Lynchburg home is experiencing. While it’s rare for construction issues to be sources, they do happen. The most common causes, however, are rooted in the soil. Situated in south central Virginia, Lynchburg has a combination of sandy loam and clay loam soil. It’s easy for these soils to become unstable, especially with an average of 42 inches of rainfall per year. Unstable, expansive, wet soil contributes to phenomena including the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure that lead to cracking, bowing, leaking foundations.
Just like any foundation repair solution, it’s important to consult with an expert to find out which type of repair is the best solution for your home.
Expansive soils soak up any available water, making it easy to take a look at the water sources around your home to determine if they are playing a part in your foundation problems.
Severe drought can be the downfall of your Virginia or Maryland foundation, causing differential settlement and prepping the stage for water problems down the line. JES is here to help.
Common Foundation Repair Solutions in Lynchburg
Depending on your foundation type, the extent of damage, and other factors, your Lynchburg home can benefit from any number of foundation repair solutions. If your home is settling, piering systems – helical piers, push piers, or slab piers – can be used to stabilize and help lift the foundation. Walls that need to be repaired can benefit from carbon fiber reinforcements, wall repair beams, or wall anchors. Crawl space support posts can also be used to shore up and even out sagging floors.
JES Helical Piers are hot-dip galvanized to protect against corrosion. The pier shaft is round, which is the strongest underpinning solution design, offering you a strong and permanent solution.
IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System
Manufactured to be resistant to corrosion, the IntelliBrace™ System is more resilient than normal uncoated I-Beams and reduces wear and abrasion.
Basement waterproofing can involve a below-floor drainage system, coupled with a sump pump and wall system
